For the past 18 months, Pierce Transit has been studying the feasibility of implementing High Capacity Transit (HCT) along a 14.4-mile corridor on Pacific Avenue/SR 7 between downtown Tacoma and Spanaway. The corridor is currently served by Pierce Transit’s Route 1, which has the highest ridership in the agency’s fixed-route bus system.
At its July 9 meeting, the Pierce Transit Board of Commissioners will select the project’s “Locally Preferred Alternative,” consisting of the mode (type of service), termini (where it starts and ends), and its alignment (route). The meeting will begin at 4 p.m. at the Pierce Transit Building 5 Training Center, 3720 – 96th Street SW in Lakewood.
